. at this point, america was in the throes of a cold war and our great nation was viewed with cynicism. the peace corps showed the world the enduring values of peace, commitment to national service and an optimism that had been lost in the cold war and world war ii. under the masterful direction of sargent shriver, it grew to 1,500 volunteers. i was one of those early recruits. i found myself in peace corps training and found myself in medellin, colombia. i saw the grinding cycles of poverty that left so many men, women and children without hope. i committed then to work to end the culture of poverty. it is in no small part due to that experience in the peace corps that i am standing here in the congress. yes, i will yield. mr. dreier: i'd like to con gradge late my friend for his service in the peace corps. he not only served then but he continues to share that with us today and as we deal with countries around the world, the peace corps has been very important and i'm happy to recognize their 50th anniversary. mr. farr: thank you, mr. dreier. over the past 50 years, the peace corps has shown th

in missouri, we really appreciate you really being one-person voice of america at a time when we really need it. so thank you. i wanted to submit two questions to you in writing. one, about our continued work. we had an oversight subcommittee last year. we heard from stewart bowen and we would like to get an update on the transition efforts in terms of reconstruction, how that process is going and also would like to get a written question in to you about the ongoing engagement with bosnia for constitutional reforms and the need for u.s. engagement with the e.u. but i'd like to focus my question really about the voices of democracy that are really rising across the middle east, north africa and elsewhere and the need to reevaluate our public diplomacy tools. certainly, looking beyond our traditional state to state, diplomatic efforts but about citizen to citizen diplomacy, the cost-effectiveness of that. i was especially reminded of that this past week. i had a bipartisan town hall meeting with congresswoman emerson and a student came up to me who studied in cairo the previous year, was conti

to the american people. since returning from south america, the president has begun to talk in greater detail about our involvement in libya. for the second time, he's discussed our operations in and around libya with the congressional leadership. over the weekend he devoted his entire address to the topic and he'll speak to the american people tonight about our operations in libya. all of this is welcome and in my view, overdue. before addressing what answers i hope to hear from the president this evening let me address the notifications to congress that the president has made. prior to the initiation of combat activities in libya the congressional leadership received two forms of notification of the president's decision to order americans into harm's way. prior to departing for his overseas trip, the president notified the congressional leadership of his plans to send american forces in to combat in action a limited discreet role to destroy the integrated air defenses of the libyan government and to enable our allies to estab

to israel? is america on the wrong side? i think we are. two things to watch for. one, israel is about to strike back. israel can only take so much. nobody in the press is covering what is happening to israel. when israel strikes back, which they are being forced to do now, watch out. because the gates of hell are going to open up. and we will do nothing. and it's worse than that. as you will see tonight. the second thing i think you need to watch for a call to come from washington to pull out our troops in the middle east. which may be our best option, which would send the world in to chaos. but the other option will be soon to send more troops because of the humanitarian crisis. either way you slice it, our troops and our nation is at peril. tonight, i believe i can put some of this together in your head and some of these things will make sense. you won't like the answer. but they will make sense. ♪ ♪ >> glenn: hello, america. nothing in the world make sense. tonight we're going to shed some light on some of the issues and decisions that are leaving people confused. we have some

defend the constitution of the united states of america. we commissioned a survey by public opinion strategies, one of the most respected polling organizations, and let me tell you what they found. in spite of all that talk about it being about the economy and jobs, and jobs and the economy were critical, they found that 32% of the entire electorate on november 2 was made up of conservative and evangelical christians who voted 70%-21% republican, and they were the booster rocket that drove the biggest landslide in a century, and will be the key to victory in 2012 and again. i know that sometimes when people go to washington they lose 20 i.q. points, and some have more despair than others. there is a tendency sometimes among the punditocracy to think that moral issues should be kept out of polite conversation. that social conservatives should ride in the back of the bus. my message to the national republican party tonight is simple -- if you turn your backs on the pro-family-pro-life consider freezing -- constituency, you will be consigned to permanent minority status. some have sugg

with it the right resources by countering that ideology. the narrative says that america is against muslims, it creates this that america is going to iraq, to convert, kill them, attack them. that's the narrative. we can present our strategy so far has been try to break down that propaganda. that's wrong. we need to have a forward strategy of liberty minded freedom minded ideas into the islamic consciousness. we can do that as muslims but we need your help through websites, a social network. look what happened in egypt and tunisia through social networking and that countered a lot, that wasn't islamists that did that. most was secular muslims that wanted to take control of their future. when we have a government that produces a report and after the hassan incident and the word muslim or islam or jihad isn't in the document, you wonder why we are so paralyzed in treating this, i as a muslim i need this conversation. if we're going to fix this cancer that's within, the whole viable wonderful beautiful faith that i practice, we need to be able to talk about it. it's like trying to treat cancer

to transform america. you are in many ways saying you want to transform america. >> i think president obama wants to change america into a different country. i want to renew the american dream that all of us are endowed by our creator with certain alien able rights. we have the right to pursue happiness. i want to make sure everybody has a chance to create wealth. if somebody hasn't create it you can redistribute it. i saw him today talking about how no school is going to fail. the sad fact is, his administration backs things like the new york city union which wants to fire the 5,000 most newest most aggressive, most energetic, most dedicated teachers on behalf of mediocrity. i think we ought to be clear, if you want people not to fail you better have a standard of measuring success. you better have a standard of encouraging people to do their best. the president unfortunately backs bureaucracies that guarantee we are not going to you can seed. >> sean: we you have -- we you have a 14 trillion debt by the time the next president gets in it will be around 18 trillion, how do you with numbers
